Range Description

Found in northern and central lowland Bolivia, western Brazil and north-eastern Peru. It ranges south of the Rio Amazonas-Solimes, west of the Rio Tapajs, to the Ro Ucayali in Peru (replaced by Ateles belzebuth on the left bank of the lower Ucayali) (Aquino and Encarnacin 1994a). It crosses the middle Ucayali south of the Ro Cushabatay (a left bank tributary of the Ucayali), extending into the interfluvium of the ros Ucayali and Huallaga. From there, it extends south along the eastern Cordillera into Bolivia, south of the Ro Madre de Dios, south to about 17S, and from there extending north-east through the Noel Kempf Mercado National Park (Wallace et al. 1998), into the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil, to the left bank of the Rio Teles Pires and Rio Tapajs. It occurs through a large part of the state of Rondnia in Brazil, where there is suitable forest (Iwanaga and Ferrari 2002)
